Saturday hippie: Out of India

Hippie identity drew on many roots.

As yoga and related spiritual teachings spread across America, the color of India took hold in hippie circles.

Saturday Hippie is a weekly feature that highlights a counterculture awareness and spirit, including a vision of a harmonious global commonwealth on the horizon.
